Vintage Wearers Speak: Introduction


I'm excited to share this eight-part series with all of you! I've been planning it since last fall, and so many of you have contributed and shared your insight. 

One of the things I love about the vintage community is that we're a motley crew tied together only by a love of old fashion. Literally everything else about us is totally variable, even the reasons why we wear old fashion. I've enjoyed getting to know many of you and to learn the complexities of vintage wearers and their lives, and I hope this post series showcases this diversity a bit more.

Flashback Summer: Reproduction 1940s WWII US Navy Dungarees

Last summer I attended my first WWII reenactment, and while I was there I got to try on these original 1940s US Navy dungarees that Emily of Emily's Vintage Visions brought to the event. Surprisingly, they fit me perfectly! They must have been owned by a very tiny, Depression-diet man back in the day as the hips and even the length fit me, a 5' tall woman.
